The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan by Rick Perlstein.
This is the 3rd book in Perlstein’s ongoing series (Before the Storm, Nixonland) on the rise of conservatism in America from the mid-Sixties on, and how it led to the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980. Here he takes us from the inauguration of Richard Nixon for his second term to the 1976 Republican convention that narrowly picked Gerald Ford over Reagan. Perlstein gives us an enthralling overview of a troubled time for American society – Watergate, the fall of Saigon & the fall of Nixon, Patty Hearst, cults, ‘stagflation’, gas shortages, illegal activities by the CIA – while also showing how a one-time New Deal Democrat & second tier Hollywood star became the Right’s successful standard bearer. With many echoes of today’s politics, this is an essential work to help understand how we got to where we are today.
